    Question A Few Weeks

    I was reading some novel and found this:

    a. "He hope to stay here for a few weeks yet."

    What does "yet" mean? If I wrote:

    b. "He hope to stay here for a few weeks."

    How is b. different from a.?

    Re: A Few Weeks

    ]It has the idea of "He hopes/hoped to stay for a few more weeks." It does not sound very natural to me.

    Re: A Few Weeks

    So, "yet" = "more"
